Introduction to Brigitte Swainson

France is my country of origin.  30 years ago I fell in love with Scotland while roaming the hills, glens and lochs with my young family and have never left since.

I lived in Linlithgow where Mary Queen of Scot was born. Her life, like Scottish history,  is intrinsically linked to France. I love to tell the story of Scotland when European interests and religion fashioned the destiny of the country and its queens and kings. The French legacy can be found everywhere; in architecture, art and even the Scots language.

I have always loved communicating my enthusiasm for Scotland and its culture. I take great pleasure in sharing the delights of my country of adoption.

Laissez-moi vous raconter l’Écosse! Mon professionnalisme et enjouement vous feront passer des moments inoubliables.

The weather changes very quickly. Make sure you are dressed like an onion – with lots of layers which you can peel off. Come prepared for the wind and rain but also for the heat!


Do a tour of Edinburgh – a combined walking tour of the Old and the New town will give you a perspective on Scotland past and present and an appreciation of this gorgeous Unesco Site.

I want to make your stay in Scotland really special!
